Exactly my point.

Alienware computers are basically overpriced Dells.

No, not basically... they're literally overpriced Dells.

So if you buy a computer that says "Alienware" on it, and you buy a computer that says "Dell" on it, the Dell will be half the price but the exact same quality.

Now mind you, this only holds true for laptops.

Because Dell desktops absolutely suck.

However, since you're on a budget, Toshiba is your next best bet. See if you can find something in the Satellite line, or if you need a tablet, the Portege line. Toshibas are sturdy, reliable, made with good-quality parts, and typically reasonably priced.

Third option would be, believe it or not, a Dell. Laptops are the only thing Dell does properly, but they do a decent job with them, and they're more modestly priced than a Toshiba.

Avoid Windows Vista on a laptop, try to get one with Windows 7. 7 has all manner of power management options... some optional, some built into the software. Laptops run longer with Windows 7.
Is there a Mac version of Star Trek Online? It'll play nicely on a MacBook/MacBook Pro?

You can get a Toshiba or Dell that's identical for half the cost.

Even more true for desktops, especially if you build it yourself.
alienware is like the height of decadence

its like a gold plated toothpick, or silk toilet paper

I think there is one in the works, but I'm not entirely sure.

I think they "put it on the back burner" (i.e. cancelled it) along with a console version.

So no point in really getting a MacBook then if I plan on playing this game, or any game really for that matter.

I'm a little biased (I run a M$-based network), but yeah, no point.
